Mitsubishi Intros 8 LCD, 9 DLP High-Def TVs

Mitsubishi Digital Electronics doesn’t seem to believe in introducing new products a few at a time, giving retailers and the marketplace a change to examine each group in relative isolation, comparing and contrasting the new offerings with the rest of the marketplace. No, instead Mitsubishi appears to believe in the equivalent of saturation bombing, announcing no fewer than eight new LCD flat-panel high-definition televisions today, along with nine new DLP flat-panel displays. If there was ever a sign high-definition televisions have become a commodity item, this might be it.

First, Mitsubishi is promoting the new LCD lineup as a series of top-flight, 1080p displays sporting a new thin-frame design, HDMI 1.3, and the company’s Full Spectrum Color system which offers 25 percent more color than standard LCD displays. The new units range from the 40-inch LT-20133 with a suggested retail price of $,699, all the way up to the 52-inch Diamond LT-52244 with a suggested price of $5,699. All models feature Mitsubishi’s Thin Frame design which measures roughly one inch thick and still offers high-quality built-in speakers. The displays also support x.v.Color, Mitsubishi’s Full Spectrum Color, and HDMI 1.3 inputs with Deep Color support. The units sport three rear HDMI inputs, with some models offering side inputs for connecting camcorders, game consoles, or other devices. The displays also offer USB input for accessing thumb drives or card readers, and are digital cable-ready with a CableCard slot.

The offerings are broken into three lines—the 733, 734, and Diamond series—each sporting three models in 57-, 65-, and 73-inch sizes.
